Simple Shapes Spectacular Quilts was where I found the gorgeous quilt he named Facet.
The diamond shapes caught my eye from the start, and I loved the colour palette he used for this quilt.

However on the next page in the book, Kaffe has shown a photo of the incredible mosaic wall his assistant Brandon Mably created to 'spruce up our London entryway' (quote). If you click on the picture you may even spot the teapot lids and cup handles he has placed throughout the mosaic...fabulous!

So the idea for combining Kaffe's gorgeous quilt and Brandon's fabulous wall began! Instead of string piecing the blocks as Kaffe has done, I decided to start with lighter and darker grey diamonds, which would become the 'grout' between the mosaic 'pieces'.
